Indiana Community Involvement

2014 Polar Plunge Benefits Special Olympics Indiana

by Staff | February 26th, 2014


Helping the community is important to the Indiana Personal Injury Lawyers with Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin. That is why we are happy to participate in an event benefiting the Special Olympics Indiana that took place this weekend!

The 2014 Polar Plunge was held at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 15, at the south entrance of the Hulman Center on the campus of Indiana State University. Participants were asked to gather donation pledges prior to the event. Then, upon arrival, those who had collected donations turned in their pledges and took a plunge into the icy water of the plunge pool.

The event was followed by the After Splash Bash, where food and drinks were available as awards were handed out to the top performing participants.

All proceeds from the event went toward developing the Special Olympics Indiana programs, an organization the team of attorneys with Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin work with on a regular basis. In fact, the firm is planning to set up a photo booth during the local Special Olympics events taking place in Terre Haute this June.

Indiana Personal Injury Lawyer, Tom Newlin, Completes Cross Country Bike Ride

by Staff | February 5th, 2014

Helping clients and others achieve their dreams is a focus for the Indiana Personal Injury Lawyers at Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin, and one of our own recently reached such a goal. Founding partner, Tom Newlin, recently completed a cross-country journey on bicycle that spanned more than 12 states in a total of 32 days.

Tom kept a journal throughout the journey, which was posted online. This allowed friends and family back home, along with others, to keep up with and experience the ride via the Internet. During the trip, Newlin and the others he was traveling with covered a total distance of 3,517 miles, or an average of around 112 miles per day.

A group called Pacific-Atlantic Cycling (PAC) Tours oversaw all aspects of the trip including food, shelter, and support, organized the ride. The group began in the northwest section of Washington state and ended just over a month later on the east coast of Virginia. During that time, Newlin stated he gained experiences and friendships that he will cherish for a lifetime.

The firm would like to congratulate Tom Newlin on the completion of his trip and goal and encourages citizens to stay aware of what the firm is doing in the area by checking out the latest firm news on our website!
